fedora-users: Re: Cannot configure printer that is on a windows

Re: Cannot configure printer that is on a windows server

The issue isn't ip address vs name either one works. The issue is why am I
being asked for authentication information when none is configured on the
windows side? I can access the server via smbclient with no issues, but I
can't configure a printer using s-c-p because it asks for authentication.
